Death Knight Class Guide

The Death Knight is a hero class introduced in Wrath of the Lich King. A Death Knight is a hybrid class that mixes together both magic and melee to bring a devastating force to both the armies of the Horde and Alliance. Death Knights are effective tanks, damage dealers, and can devastate most magic users with their anti-magic abilities. Not to mention their ability to reanimate the dead! These former knights of the undead are a formidable force to be reckoned with.

This guide will walk you through the various aspects of the Death Knight class from the novice to experienced user. The guide is broken into several different parts and organized so that you can get to what you need when you need it. This is the starting point of the guide.
